Karnataka HC upholds verdict on FSSA, mandates BIS for packaged water

The Karnataka High Court has upheld the verdict that packaged drinking water comes within the purview of Food Safety and Standard Act, 2006.

Further, the court has said that certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is mandatory for packaged drinking water.

It also directed the state government to take action to prohibit and prevent the manufacture and sale of packaged drinking water without BIS certification.

A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Vikramajit Sen and Justice Aravind Kumar passed the order while disposing of a public interest litigation (PIL) petition by Lochamesh B Hugar of Hubli complaining inaction by the authorities against manufacturers of packaged drinking water operating without BIS certification, and a batch of petitions filed by the manufacturers claiming that certification from BIS was not necessary.
